Template talk:Annotated image/Extinction
There needs to be a way, either via the image or the caption, to reach the image description page. Without that there is no attribution for either the image or the data. Dragons flight (talk) 00:39, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
- How do image maps usually resolve this problem? The image name is visible in the source so there should be no copyright issues. Martin (Smith609 – Talk) 08:13, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
- Bloody edit conflict!
- Problem is that this template uses Extension:ImageMap as well as Template:Annotated image. On its own, Template:Annotated image makes un-annotated areas link to the image description page; but it appears that Extension:ImageMap suppresses this. Extension:ImageMapprovides 2 ways to link to the image description page:
- desc parameter, e.g. "desc bottom-left" places "i" button bottom left. Not a great option here.
- default parameter, e.g. "default myImage.svg", makes all except the defined hot spots link to specified location. This might be worth trying, provided it does not suppress the annotations.
- I've set default, works fine for me using K-meleon: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/20070727 K-Meleon/1.1.2). I'd expect it to work well for Firefox, which uses same Gecko engine. IE, anyone?
- Image description page has citations. -- Philcha (talk) 09:37, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
The same way they did it
Shouldn't the quaternary period be on this map as well? Isn't this the second most devastating period of extinction? I can't add it myself because the numbers in the coding do not directly correspond to the numbers of the data so I can't see how it works, ~ R.T.G 00:48, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Actually, the numbers on the picture go fully up to zero, but the data doesn't seem to match the articles as regards the zero/present part. There should be a big line there at the end and a link to the last 3 million years, no? Maybe it's the difference between marine data and overall data..? I don't know but there is definitely no quaternary in the source code of the links. ~ R.T.G 00:55, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
